Use the MARES device to quantify the time course of changes in muscle strength and performance of crewmember volunteers during six-month ISS missions. Establish baseline strength and performance capabilities of each participating crewmember from two pre-flight test sessions, track changes from that baseline during three in-flight test sessions, and track recovery to baseline levels during five post-flight test sessions.
